        I like this foundation for an everyday natural look. First application gives a light coverage and second application gives more of a medium coverage. I give this foundation four stars because it doesn't last all day.

        Comments about Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

        Nice finish, blends well and looks like your skin. Just too sheer for me, I prefer a light coverage but this was just a little too sheer. Even application and hydrating feeling but didn't last through the day, it seemed to melt off my skin by the 6-8 hour. Would use for just everyday wear or very sheer coverage but I need a bit more lasting power and coverage for the workday.

            I have been looking for a good light to medium coverage foundation and this is now my holy grail. I have pretty clear skin, my only problem is i get red in some places. I don't like the heaviness of a full coverage foundation, so this is perfect. It is a little pricey and i wish they had more color options, i bought the lightest one and its still just a shade too dark.

                Hi There! Our Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Foundation is sweat and humidity resistant. This might be a better match. Pair it with our Primer Water to prime, refresh and set your skin throughout the day. It will help keep you cool while your foundation lasts and lasts.
